Warning

This is the documentation the latest work-in-progress version of MPF!

This is the documentation for MPF 0.56, which is the “dev” (next) release of MPF that is a work-in-progress. This is probably ok, and means you’ll be on the latest, cutting-edge version of MPF.

However, if you want a more stable version, select the v:stable version from the lower-left corner of this page, which is the most recent version that is not getting new updates.

If you are new to MPF, we have recently rewritten the installation process which only applies to this “latest” 0.56, so you probably want to stay here because the prior installation process doesn’t work on the latest OS and Python versions.

Config file reference

This section contains details about every possible entry you can use in your YAML config files. Each entry also has information about whether it’s valid in your machine-wide config, a mode-specific config, or both.

Index of config sections

Here’s a list of every single config section from both MPF and the MPF-MC. Some of these are valid only in machine-wide configs, and others only work in mode config files. (And some are valid in both.) The detail page for each setting indicated which type of config file it’s valid in.
